Benbecula Community Cinema – where Hebridean and Caribbean meet

Hebridean Voices get a hearing alongside Caribbean ones on the “Silver Screen” at the Benbecula Community Cinema on Saturday 10th September.  Blockbusting “Pirates of the Caribbean – on Stranger Tides” gets its Uist premiere, with a retrospective selection of Series One Island Voices shorts offered up as a tasty starter. The focus this time is on Hebridean Food!

Neil Campbell from Sustainable Uist is keen to showcase local productions alongside headlining feature films in an exciting programme for Benbecula Community Cinema over the coming months.

    Island Voices replaces Pathé News as a taster to the big film!!!!.

    Pioneering and innovative scheduling. Small communities across the UK could learn something from this new approach to film going. A novel approach in the spirit of the original BBC film unit that started this kind of digest news short story documentary approach to film making that educated and entertained up to 48 million film goers after the Second World War (there were matinees on a Wednesday and my Mum went twice a week).

    This is groundmaking stuff and deserves a wider audience for what it is doing in terms of promoting the film going experience for small communities in the early part of the 21st century.

    Small communities and towns across the UK could learn something from what is taking place in Benbecula.

    Very interesting indeed. When Saturday comes, I will be there, if only in spirit.

    Congratulations to all the organisers and best wishes for what is clearly going to be an inspiring and memorable moment in the life of the community.

    It is of such stuff that history is made.
